WATCH, PRAY BUT DON’T COME DOWN!

 

WATCH & PRAY BUT DON'T COME DOWN

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

And I looked, and arose and said to the nobles, to the leaders, and to the rest of the people, “Do not be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, great and awesome, and fight for your brethren, your sons, your daughters, your wives, and your houses.” …Wherever you hear the sound of the trumpet, rally to us there. Our God will fight for us.” Nehemiah 4:14, 20

 

In the midst of  the current chaos and drama of this ungodly world, some might be tempted to question God’s Presence and even more crucial, might be confused about His Concern! However, rest assured, nothing happens in the earth that will ever take God by surprise! Remember, it ain’t always what it looks like! God is ALWAYS UP 2 something! When it seems as if the world is falling apart, Holy Spirit reminds us that EVERYTHING IS FALLING RIGHT IN PLACE! GOD DOES HIS BEST WORK IN THE DARK! WOW!

Saints of The Living God, Holy Spirit is calling Zion to Higher ground! The spirit of intrepidation and intimidation emanating from the rulers of darkness in high places, is rampantly pursuing to annihilate the people of God’s Confidence, Peace and Joy in The Faithfulness of our Heavenly Father! But we, who have placed our personal faith, trust and hope in The Eternal Lord Jesus Christ, must remain vigilant, united in Spirit, discerning the times, armed and ready to fight rather than come down!

While there is a time for reconciliation, there is also a time for WAR! And God did not leave us empty-handed!  “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;” (2 Corinthians 10:4-5)

Beloved, we recognize that the struggle is real, howevrrr, IS ANYTHING 2 HARD 4 GOD? ABSOLUTELY NOT!

As the Scriptures admonishes, let us not be weary in well-doing as if we don’t have a GOD on OUR side! Instead, as we see the darkness encroaching, we must draw closer to The Light! “Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God. Colossians 3:16

Didjaheardat?

Children, let us keep our hearts tuned, listening for The Trumpet’s sound, calling us to rally at the Altar of Prayer and covering one another! Don’t allow the delusory maneuvers of the enemy to distract you from fulfilling your God-Ordained Purpose for being! STAY FOCUSED & FAITHUL!!! Hence, Be about OUR FATHER’S BUSINESS!

TRUST2KNO, OUR GOD WILL FIGHT 4 US! SO…WATCH & PRAY BUT DON’T COME DOWN! #TRUMPDAT?

SELAH!

We bless You for this day! This is a new day that we’ve never seen before and will never see again!! We come in child-like faith, before The Father of All Grace, Mercy and Comfort, rejoicing in hope, for this is the day that You have made! We thank You for watching over us last night as we rested safely in our beds, surrounded by Your Loving-Kindness,  with a roof over our heads! We know that we can’t ever take thany of these things for granted, especially  these days of time! We thankya Jesus for awakening us this morning, allowing us the activities of our limbs, being clothed in the right mind to know what, where, who and WHOSE we are! We praise You Holy Spirit for instructing our hearts to seek You first, earnestly praying the prayer of faith, trusting that as we commit all of our way to You, You are well able and willing to daily provide all of our needs according to Your Riches in Glory!

 

We bow in Holy reverence, praising You O Lord, for You are our Portion! While some trust in chariots, and some trust in horses, our Hope shall forever remain in You Alone! We look to The True and Living God, Jehovah, The Great Deliverer, The Keeper of our Souls! As pray, in The Majestic Name that is above every other name that can be named, JESUS, we ask that You forgive us for every sin, every word spoken, every thought, every deed and every intent of our hearts that was not pleasing in Your Sight! Knowing that You’ve promised that if we confess with our mouths, believing in our hearts that You will forgive us, wash us in The Sacrificial Blood of Your Lamp, You are Faithful and Just to forgive and restore our our right relationship with/in You we ask, Lord forgive me!

Abba Father, because You said, if I be lifted up from the earth, I’ll draw all men unto me, we pray that as ,You Holy Father, are searching the hearts of men everywhere , remember that no man can come to The Father, except You draw us! Therefore, we pray for men everywhere, especially those of the Household o Faith! Save that one who is closes to Hell’s firey-destruction today! Break-up their stony hearts, quicken their dead spirit with a Spirit of Godly Repentance, that they may cry out to You, “LORD, WHAT MUST I DO TO BE SAVED?” Plant a “SINCERE YES’ into their hearts and minds and order their steps to a local church where they’ll be received with Love and Joy, nurtured and instructed in the WORD, WILL AND WAYS of their personal Savior and Lord! In Jesus Name!

Father God, we lift up every backslider who has been deceived, by Satan, drawn away by their own lustful desires and foolishly walking away from You, The Only Hope of Salvation! Precious Savior, remind them of Your Promise that You are Married to the backslider and if they’d humble themselves and pray, You will never deny nor forsake any who’s hearts cry is a ‘COMMITTED YES LORD!”Assure that one that You are The Good Shepherd, who welcomes with outstretched Love, any repented soul back into The Kingdom Fold!

 

Sweet Jesus, today we cry out for those who need help, hope, deliverance and salvation! You have given us a spirit of a strong mind, therefore we do not fear what the enemy can do! We do not fear what man can do. Hence, we ask you to intervene on our behalf, move uponYour church today! Thankya for leaders who are listening to You preaching, teaching and living Your Word as beacons of Light amidst the gross darkness of this ungodly world! Thankya for opening the eyes of our understanding and loosing us into our destiny! Thank You Holy Spirit for inspiring Hope that springs eternally!

Father, as we lift up our children, our children’s children by faith,we abort and overrule every curse that’s been ordered against their lives, canceling every scheme that Satan desires to inflict upon them! As we commit them into Your Providential care, we realize that You have a plan and purpose for their lives too and we have the blessed assurance that their steps are being ordered by Your eyes! Therefore we speak The Peace of God over their spirits, minds and bodies releasing a spirit of Love, Holiness and Excellence to fulfill their God ordained destiny!

 

Precious Savior, as we yield before You today, in reverent worship-filled boldness, we’re yet believing You to move upon the stony hearts of all those who have no compassion for families children, those who are suffering, those who have lack. While, it’s not always easy to do, but in obedient trust, we ask that You look on presidents, kings, leaders and all those who You have positioned in places of authority, visit them in the nighttime with dreams and visions, touch their hearts, change hearts and minds, and redirect their course, lead and guide them to pursue the old landmarks along the pathways of holiness and righteousness!

Sweet Holy Spirit, we pray for the church to be the CHURCH and strip us from every demonic influence! You have called us to impact and to be influencers in the midst of this lost and ungodly world. Grace Your Children to pray for our enemies and all those who despitefully use us! Help us to bless those who are bitter and speak evil of us that our faith may be a sign that we belong to You! Empowered by Holy Spirit, we pronounce blessing, joy, peace, favor upon all who trust you, as You prepare a table before our enemies!

Lord send confirmation to those whose faith may be wavering as we’re waiting for Your Hand to move on our behalf. Thank You for allowing our pain to birth greatness in us, transition us into new levels of Your anointing, opportunities, relationships and restoring that which is broken! We ask that you help us to move by faith, remembering not the former things but confidently reaching forward fully persuaded and anticipating that everything you have promised already is!

Lord, as You are seated high above the circle of the earth, You see all those things that are coming against Your Will, Your Plan, and we know that it’s only because many of Your creationcs yet fail to acknowledge You as The One True God, King of kings and Lord of lords! Father,  nevertheless, ewmwmvwe those of us who identify with the Cross today as we cry out to You, for You are THE POWER, THE GLORY, THE ETERNAL LORD, Sovereignly ruling above all kings! Because  ALL POWER is  in Your Hands, You have the power to speak life to dead things! Because the Power of Life and Death is in You, You have the Power to keep us in the operating room, dialysis, court room, chemotherapy and psychotherapy! You can still rebuke cancer, mental disorders, shrink tumors, heal skeptical diseases, regulate and heal blood disease! You are not bound by anything! According to Your authority, we call all flesh to line up with Your Will and Your Word, in Jesus Name Amen 3x!!!

Father God, as we pray for our children, our grand and great grands, we abort and overrule every curse that’s been ordered against their lives. “We cancel every plot and scheme that Satan desires to inflict upon them As we commit their lives into Your Providential care, we acknowledge that You have a plan and purpose for each of their lives and with the Blessed Assure that their steps are being Divinely orchested by Your Eyes, we speak The Peace of God over their spirits, minds and bodies! We release a Spirit of Love, Holiness and Excellence to fulfill their God-Ordained destiny in Jesus Name! Amen 3x!

Sweet Holy Spirit, we lift up our spiritual leaders,  believing for an immediate manifestation of that special miracle that those who are yet standing on the wall proclaiming Your Word, under the convicting anointing of Holy Spirit! We’re trusting and believing that You will Grace each of them to be the examples in their homes, churches and communities that will entice all who come into contact with them to fall deeply in Love with Jesus and make a decision to follow Your Teachings!

You have allowed us to see in the spirit before we see in the natural and call those things which be not, as though they already exist! Therefore we declare and decree that we see our loved ones free from every addiction; we see them Saved, Sanctified, walking in the newness of Life! We see them filled with the Precious Gift of Holy Spirit, empowered and walking worthy and circumspectfully, giving You the Glory for Salvation, Healing and Deliverance, because of Your Mercy and Grace toward us!

As we stand in agreement on behalf of all who are crying out for their children, grands, great grands, we’re believing that their souls are being comfort ed today! We rebuke guilt, shame and condemnation! We bind every lying spirit who would have them in bondage to past failures, mistakes! Remind them that all have sinned and come short of Your Righteous, but because of Your Great Mercy, we were not consumed! Remind them that JESUS PAID THE SIN DEBT FOR US ALL and because of HIS Cleansing, Delivering, Sanctifying Atoning Blood that was shed for all, once and for all we are free to live the holy, acceptable and pleasing lives that You have purchased for any who will accept The Gift of Eternal Salvation!

Holy Redeemer, because of the frailness of our flesh we know that perhaps there are so many issues and concerns we could and should pray about that escapes our minds. Nevertheless, we lift up every unspoken request before Your Majestic Throne now! Remember those who are broken hearted, feeble in body and spirit, the ones at a crossroad of life, the ones addicted to harmful substances, our armed forces, policemen, fire and rescue personnel, nurses, doctors, pastors and leaders, missionaries far and near; the leaders of the world. We’re trusting You to send peace where there is confusion, send love where there is hate, send unity where there is division. Bless the fatherless and motherless. Keep us ALL in your care. These favors we ask in Jesus Mighty Name!!

LORD GOD, as we close our prayer, standing  prayerfully in the gap for these traumatized children and these heartbroken mothers and fathers that have been separated, we ask PLEASE LORD help these mothers and fathers be re-united with the 2,000 children that have been placed in detention centers all over the land before this executive order. Send your Guardian Angels to these detention centers. Lord God please watch over these children who are being transferred all over different states, some far away from their parents. LORD GOD, MOVE on their behalf. Break the yoke of the strongman!

Holy Father, we wait in confidence and quietness, rejoicing in hope and trusting wholly that all workers of iniquity are trembling and suddenly departing in shameful defeat, because You have heard the voice of our weeping, our supplications and received our prayer as a sweet savor coming up before Your Sovereign Throne of Grace and Mercy!

Abba Father, we stand in agreement with You Who hears ours prayers and forgives our transgressions! Holy Father, because You have chosen to live in Your House, we shout with exceeding Joy unto The Hope of all the earth, believing that as Your face shines upon us, You are making Your ways and salvation known among all nations for You Guide and Rule justly!

Father, believing that is done, we thank You NOW! In The Exalted Name of Jesus. Amen 3X and It Is So!
Now every child of God who is standing in agreement with this prayer, GO TELL SOMEBODY THAT JESUS STILL SAVES, HEALS AND DELIVERS!

SELAH!

WHATCHA SAY?

“And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” Matthew 16:19

Ever wonder why it seems like The Word of God isn’t working for you? Hopefully, we do know that the fault can’t be with God, right? Well that leaves, you know who; and I ain’t talking about the devil. Although he doesn’t mind a bit lapping up the free publicity! So what are we doing, or perhaps more appropriately, what are we not doing?

Normally, in our western culture, we tend to use the words, declare and decree interchangeably when in fact they are quite different. Judicially, before a policy or a law can be enforced or carried out there must be a decree or a mandate  authorized by a source who is empowered to rule or to govern. In other words a decree must be handed down from a sovereign or higher authority!

One of the many fringe benefits of our Covenant Relationship through our Lord Jesus Christ is as bona fide heirs we have The Keys to the Kingdom! Keys represent authority! However, we must first understand not what but Who our Key is—it is the Name of JESUS! (Ref. Romans 4:11) Hence, The Creator of the universe has entrusted us to speak (decree) things that be not and expect them to come to pass. (Ref. Romans 4:17) Didjaheardat?

As authorized agents of the Kingdom, we’re charged to enforce the plan of God—which is the WILL of GOD revealed in the WORD of GOD! This means any demonic attempt to block us from receiving the blessings of our Heavenly Father is thereby bound and forced to bow to The Name of Jesus!

The problem is, ofttimes, His children never reach a level of maturity in the things of God to freely operate in the power that God has ordained. Hence, instead of calling those things that be not as though they were, we continue to call things that are as if they will always be! And guess what, since we are created in His Image, we get just what we say! And then blame GOD because we don’t get the results we expect! We got some nerve, huh?

Considering Amos 3:3 asks “Can two walk together, except they be agreed?” , today, is your walk in alignment with Kingdom Authority? Are you calling those things which be not as though they are? Or, are you calling those things as they are? #IJS

ARE YOU SAYING WHAT GOD SAYS OR SAYING WHAT YOU SEE? INTERESTING, huh? WHATCHA SAY?

GOD’S VOICE

gods-voice-3

 

SELAH Daily Devotions!

 

But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother’s womb, and called me by his grace, to reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood.  Galatians 1:15-16

In today’s scripture text, we hear the testimonial of The Apostle Paul in response to The Lord’s prompting to go spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles. And we all know how that turned out, huh? 

GGGGLLLLORRRRRAAA 2 GOD! However, what stands out to me, is what Paul didn’t do!

The Apostle didn’t wait to get an Executive Order from The White House nor a congregational consensus before stepping out by faith. Instead of asking anybody what they thought about it, relying solely on his personal relationship with His Savior, feeling no need for further validation, The Apostle Paul immediately obeyed God’s instructions!

How about you? When you’ve heard from God, what’s your initial response? Before you move, do you have to survey the opinions of your family and friends? Does the fear of failure, embarrassment, humiliation or retaliation cause you to stagger at God’s Word? Are you willing to take a leap of faith and just do what you believe God is asking of you?

As believers, we’re sometimes reluctant to move out on a WORD FROM GOD. Not so much because we’re not trusting God, but more often than not, it’s because of a spirit of difiance deeply rooted in the lack of self-confidence in our own ability. Ooops…#noshedidn’t!

In an attempt to re-assure ourselves that we’re in God’s will, like Gideon, we will ask God for a sign and come up with some kinda obtuse fleece as further proof that it is actually God speaking. ( Judges 6) And while God so graciously granted Gideon’s request, twice, as believers, we must recognize that God often tests our trust and confidence by commissioning us to do what seems impossible!

That’s what our life in Christ is about. God doesn’t require us to walk by signs, but by hope-filled trust that whatever He asks us to do, by His Grace, we are well able to perform.

The Bible says, “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:” John 10:27. As we entreat His Presence daily in prayer inquiring direction, thru diligent study  and meditation of His Word, we learn to distinguish His Voice from the chatter emanating from the world and He will teach you what He wants of you!

That’s why it’s so important to build an intimate relationship with your Heavenly Father and not just show up at The Throne Room for emergency visits! God really cares about you! He is not a dead-beat Dad nor is He willing to settle for weekend visitations! God wants to be actively involved in every aspect of your life, every day!

WHEN YOU KNOW HIM, YOU WILL KNOW HIS WILL!  WHEN YOU KNOW HIS WILL, YOU DON’T NEED TO CONFER WITH ANYBODY…BUT U GOTTA KNOW GOD’S VOICE! #canuhearMEnow!

SELAH!

Pause, Ponder, Pray & Praiz!
